Python's import system is fully compatible with this approach.

importlib never directly writes to a .pyc file. Instead it always creates a new temporary file next to the .pyc file and then overrides the .pyc file with an atomic file system operation. See _write_atomic() in Lib/importlib/

compileall and py_compile also use _write_atomic().
